The basis for corneal shape change during contact lens wear

Carney, Leo G. (1976) The basis for corneal shape change during contact lens wear. American Journal of Optometry and Physiological Optics, 52(7), pp. 445-454.

Abstract

Trials were conducted in which subjects wore various contact lenses while their corneas were exposed to gases of varying oxygen content. Measurements of central and peripheral corneal thickness and corneal topography show that corneal topography changes after contact lens wear can have at least two causes, an unevenly distributed corneal thickness change and/or a mechanical molding of the shape.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
